I am glad Perth made the finals and it is something that has been missing for a long time, this will be a good game and I bet you guys out number us for sure, last year we Played the Eagles in this corresponding game, we lead the game right up until the last few seconds when Grey your guy now kicked a goal and ended our 2019 season... you never know he could do the same this year...:( :( but anyway good luck

DD wrote: Ok who's coming in and who misses out this week? Everyone contributed to this historic win but we need our best 22 out of the park against WP. Sam Stubbs was starting to establish himself since making his debut against Claremont in round 6 and I believe he would have held his spot if he didn't suffer a hamstring injury.

Payne was the out for Eyres on the weekend so it's going to be tricky for the selectors. Conor McPartland I think has done enough to keep his spot since debuting against Swans the week before. His last qtr was huge on the weekend.

I think I heard Earl say Payne was rested as he was carrying a hip complaint so it sounds like he will come back in to mind Black or Nelson. I am going to concede here that they will likely stick with Eyres to ruck with Delahunty and IMO we have to play either Delahunty and Eyres or 2dads because opposition are putting a lot more time into Logan McDonald these days. McInnes can still go into the ruck with Delahunty resting forward.

So who does Payne come in for? Obvious one is Hendo who I must say can hold his head high on the weekend. Lets say that happens then that leaves Stubbs. I wouldn't drop McPartland who probably replaced him when he got injured.

Richo played well against Souths after a couple of quiet games. The backline really stood up but I would say Aussie Davis might be the vulnerable one to make way for Stubbs who adds more punch, can go in the guts or forward and add potency up there. We haven't seen his best yet only glimpses but he's only played 2 league games.

Sorry the other one is Edmonds, who I think has had a pretty charmed run for a long time. There was a 50/50 in the last qtr where he was beaten too easily. Stubbs would have given a better contest.
Thoughts?


I'd love to see Stubbs play if fit because he gives us that extra big body through the middle which we'll need against the Debt Dodgers with Nelson, Black and Meadows normally doing as they please in there against us.

Be tough to drop Hendo because he's needed on one of them. And hard to find spot for Payne as well unless he takes Hendo's spot.

Wouldn't be messing with much else to be honest. I thought Eryes put in a Herculean effort against man-mountain Higgins last week. Negated him in the air and in the ruck contests as best he could. Best game in yonks and cracked double figure possessions and picked up a couple of beauties below his knees. He was on.

Any player that comes in either has to be a midfielder or a player that can shut down an opposing midfielder.
For mine Stubbs is a recruit and what I’ve seen of him if fit he’s in our best 22 and can play multiple roles.
There won’t be to many changes for this game.

Just as important as the players having a good game Earl has to be on song in the coaches box and really has to do his homework for this one he can’t role out the usual game plan when we play against WP .
Hopefully he has something out of left field in his planning.

Yep - another golden WAFC moment. Idiots.

If the weather is like it’s been this week I’d say 6k but the forecast isn’t great,it’s on tv so that may keep a lot of the neutral supporters away as well as those Demons coming out of the woodwork.
The distance to get there will play a part as well.
So maybe 4 to 5k I hope so anyway.

While WP earned the right to host, its a shame as many neutrals wont bother going, if it was at lathlain I'd make the trip down from York, should be a ripper game if you play like last week.

Yeah I knew that and I guess if I was going to take public transport I’d train it up.
So do you know of any other parking areas if the car park is full?
